One more year is near to its end and just like everyone we are also feeling nostalgic. This year comes to its end in a blink of an eye and people are resting while thinking about how everything went. 2018 is full of happy-sad ups and downs in every prospect of life.
This year also is known as the wedding year as we have witnessed many lovebirds tying the nuptial knot with their loved ones, women achieving further goals and others taking the courage to tell their share of stories through a well-known movement in Bollywood. Well, we appreciate you all who have overcome the toughest situation in their lives.

Hold a box of tissue, you guys, while reading the below tweets while one said, “I can’t afford a phone. So one friend gave me the $ for a prepaid iPhone & another has been paying for my monthly service ever since. It’s been such a lifeline for me & my kids/family. And it helps me keep in touch online too. So grateful” and the other tweeted, “I started a new job around the time my son was born. Sleep wasn’t really happening and I thought it was affecting my work. President calls me in to talk, I figured I was fired. He and his SO made frozen dinners so I wouldn’t have to worry about cooking with a newborn.”:
For the first time in his 26 years, my little brother has started calling me, just to say hi or check in. He called during the Kavanaugh hearings to see if I was ok. (I wasn’t.) Sometimes he even says, “love you” before he hangs up. It’s small, but means more to me than anything.

my friend invited me to her place for Christmas because my parent’s home isn’t a safe place for me right now. The generosity of her offer was really overwhelming

So so so many kindnesses
A friend offered me their time, money, home and love unconditionally while things were difficult two months ago.
Someone else in my life continues to constantly pull me up when I fail to be a better person and sticks their neck out to show me a mirror. https://t.co/V3IymS3MhF

I was bitching to a Walgreens clerk about how my shoelace had come untied even though I’d double knotted it, and she kneeled down & double knotted it for me.

My defibrillator was firing every few minutes. My wife got our neighbors to watch our kids. I walked outside. We could hear the ambulance, but it wasn’t there yet. I mentioned I was cold and my neighbor wrapped his arms around me.

I was saving up to reattach the bumper on my car. Cheapest estimate was over $1k. I walked to work, grocery store, and laundry. After a couple of weeks seeing it like that, my neighbor offered to do it for free. He refused any sort of payment, no matter how often I offered.

I was sleeping on some sheets on the floor. My uncle bought me not only a bed but whole entire bedroom set.

I started a coat drive at work for the poor. No one donated. When I mentioned it to a coworker, she went out and bought a dozen new coats to donate.

I’m disabled & our family has been homeless 3 times in past 7 yrs. Many times this year, friends & strangers helped us pay our rent to stay housed, brought food by. Also, a non profit provided a power wheelchair to me, which was life changing. We have been very loved on in 2018.

So many contenders, tbh, but when my cat died in the spring and I was grieving, a crafty friend conspired with my spouse to make me a handmade quilt. I got it last week, a total surprise, it is stunning and warm and I go to sleep every night under my friend’s kindness.

I received 4 $50 bills in a Christmas card from Santa. I’m 71 on a limited budget with very expensive events (brakes-stove-vet) that all happened this month. I was moved to tears. #AttitudeOfGratitude

Hands down: my mom feeding me, cleaning my house, and watching my baby while I showered/napped/cried for the first 10 days of my kid’s life. It’s the type of kindness I’ll never be able to repay ❤️ https://t.co/vw1KVrgrrk

November. My bf’s motorcycle had a minor accident; the lady leaving parallel parking in DTLA knocked it over. After waiting on towtruck for hours, 5 homeless guys said “hey we’ve seen you here awhile, bet we can all lift the front of that SUV off the bike” AND THEY DID https://t.co/2MRiLLUCUO
